Key Points

  • Bitcoin cash price struggled to move above the $1,500 resistance and moved down against the US Dollar.
  • There was a break below a key bullish trend line with support at $1,400 on the hourly chart of the BCH/USD pair (data feed from Kraken).
  • The pair declined and tested another crucial support near the $1,240 level.

Bitcoin cash price declined sharply below $1,300 against the US Dollar. BCH/USD must stay above the $1,240 support to avoid further downsides.

Bitcoin Cash Price Resistance

There was an attempt to break $1,500, but bitcoin cash price failed and moved down against the US Dollar. The price started a fresh downside move and declined below the $1,420 support level. There was also a break below the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $1,235 low to $1,481 high. It opened the doors for more losses and the price settled below $1,400 and the 100 hourly simple moving average.

More importantly, there was a break below a key bullish trend line with support at $1,400 on the hourly chart of the BCH/USD pair. The pair traded towards the last swing low and a crucial support at $1,240. Buyers appeared and the price started consolidating losses above $1,240. An initial resistance on the upside is near the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $1,481 high to $1,240 low. However, the previous support near $1,400 may perhaps act as a strong resistance on the upside.
